In terms of the amount of glue area you get, the box joint is second only
to dovetails. This makes the box joint ideal for pieces that must withstand
a lot of force, such as dresser drawers. The idea behind the box joint
is that equal parts are taken out of each face of the joining pieces,
creating a teeth-like groove. Cutting a box joint is usually done on a
table saw or router. To see how the box joint is made, check out this
